The illustrations offer an excellent representation of his watercolors and paintings, as well as his work for books. Most prominent, of course, are the flowers and precisionist views of the industrialized society. While most of the homosexual (as it was designated in his day) inclined efforts were privately distributed to friends, there are examples from the period later in life when he was open, almost to a dangerous point for a most private man. Most familiar and amusing is the museum scene of a small group viewing a most appropriate sculpture by Brancusi (Princess X). Throughout Haskell offers well-framed analyses of the pictures, with which you may or may not agree with. Whatever your degree of agreement, you will be stimulated to doing a bit of explanatory explanation yourself.
In all, though written more than 25 years ago, the book is not at all dated, and should be part of the reading program of anyone interested in American art, the Stieglitz circle, the 'outsider' in early 20th century America, or a good read for anyone concerned with aesthetic culture.
